Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Monday night asked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to conduct an open investigation on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad for alleged excesses when he was the prime minister for 22 years.
Anwar alleged that Dr Mahathir had destroyed the judicial system, abused power and misused public funds, including for his children.
The PKR de facto leader addressed about 10,000 people at a so-called Black 14 gathering at the Sultan Suleiman Club in Kampung Baru here to celebrate the end of the five-year ban on his holding public office following his conviction on corruption charges.
Anwar was convicted of corruption after he was sacked as the deputy prime minister and finance minister in September 1998 and sentenced to six years in jail.
At Monday night's gathering, Anwar asked his supporters to be patient for two more weeks for his announcement on whether he would contest a by-election to become an elected representative.
tunku : anwar moron, you said few years back you had 6 boxes of evidence,where are they?bring it out and charge tun mahathir now. There is connection between anwar and pak lah, now he's asking favour from pak lah again. Just wonder from where anwar gets the money, he don't have companies but can fund millions of ringgit......may be drops from the sky or from the jewish connection.MORON
Anwar hanya mahu mempergunakan isu yang timbul untuk kepentingan dirianya sendiri. Jika ada keuntungan pada dirinya, tanpa malu dia akan mempergunakannya sebaik mungkin. Apa yang hendak dihairankan mengenai isu wangnya yang bernilai berjuta-juta ringgit? Apa yang diperlukan olehnya untuk memperolehi nilai tersebut hanyalah dengan menjaja publisiti dan rahsia tertentu kepada pihak yang mahu mengeksploitasinya. Wang boleh diperolehi samada sewaktu dia masih berkuasa dahulu di dalam kerajaan atau sekarang di dalam PKR.
